The Origin of ｔhe Name Kaguzuchi
Kaguzuchi is the name of the god of fire in the Japanese ancient mythology.
In the myths about “Kuniumi”(the birth of the land of Japan) and “Kamiumi”(the birth of gods), Izanagi and Izanami procreated many children who formed the land of Japan and Kaguzuchi was the last child. Kaguzuchi is the origin of the word “Kagayaku” meaning ‘being radiant’.
Because Kaguzuchi was born, this world and the other world after death became separate worlds and new gods were procreated as well as night and day.
